Rum Rickey


Rum and lime go together great, but honestly, without a little sweetness I find this too harsh. I tasted it a few times, then gave in and stirred in some simple syrup.

Recipe:
.5 oz lime juice
1.5 oz light rum (Bacardi Superior)
Club soda

Pour juice and rum into an ice-filled highball glass and top with club soda and stir. Garnish with a wedge of lime.

would you say this is better than vodka tonic?

A vodka tonic is similar, but the tonic water adds bitterness. This drink is not bitter, but it is dry like a vodka tonic. If you would prefer a sour note to a bitter one, it's worth a try.
